Mature/Older Job Seeker's Guide.
Crawley, Brenda; Dancy, Joseph, Jr.
This guide provides information and exercises geared to the realities of the mature/older person's job search needs. The order of this guide follows the usual steps in job hunting: work life review, skills assessment, applications, where to look for work, how to look for work (resumes, job letters), references, job interview (pre-interview stage, interview stage, post-interview stage), job-keeping skills for mature and older workers, and the continuing contribution log. The job seeker is encouraged to work through these exercises, which include a self-assessment and skill assessment to determine a job choice, development of tools to help in the job hunt (resume, job letters), sample interview questions, and a motivation and evaluation checklist of each interview. Informative materials help the job seeker understand the process and complete the exercises. (YLB)
